Harvey Weinstein was once as soon as merely the tip of the iceberg.
Perhaps impressed by means of the waves upon waves of sexual misconduct allegations being made against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, women this present day are moreover coming forward about other Hollywood figures. The Man throughout the High Castle producer Isa Hackett mentioned in an interview with THR that Amazon Studios government Roy Price over and over again and insistently wired her, not taking no for an answer. And Oliver Stone has been accused of groping actress and Playboy sort Carrie Stevens, in keeping with the New York Daily News.
Hackett says that Price over and over again propositioned her after a dinner at the San Diego Comic Con two years previously. She says Price used escalating, vulgar language in the ones makes an strive, from saying “you will love my dick” to simply shouting “anal sex” at her.
Amazon has suspended Price throughout the wake of the ones allegations. Hackett says the Weinstein scandal caused her to go back forward about her private “shocking and surreal” experience. Interestingly, Price was once as soon as represented by means of Lisa Bloom, the equivalent lawyer who worked for Harvey Weinstein for years. Bloom has resigned from both one of the vital Hollywood moguls’ employ.
Stevens says director Oliver Stone (known for Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July and quite a lot of other movement photos) groped her at a celebration in June of 1997. From the NYDN:
“He was really cocky, had this big grin on his face like he was going to get away with something,” [said Stevens]. At that point, Stone “reached out and … honked it like a horn,” she mentioned, describing him as “an immature guy in elementary school who snaps your bra.” Stevens mentioned she was once as soon as surrounded by means of other folks, on the other hand no person mentioned anything.
Stone is known for being temperamental and bullying others during the creative process, specifically people who artwork for him (identical to Weinstein). This sentiment was once as soon as echoed by means of Billions showrunner Brian Koppelman:
Oliver Stone is a large creative have an effect on. Esp on writing dialog. But moreover, single creepiest meeting I was ever in. Loathsome. Sexist. Pig.

In fact, Stone defended Weinstein in recent times. He mentioned that he’s “a believer that you wait until this thing gets to trial … it’s not easy what [Weinstein]’s going through.” He in brief backtracked on this statement, making an excuse saying he had been traveling for a few days and didn’t know the sheer choice of women coming forward about Weinstein. He then mentioned he would once more out of a television collection he was once as soon as producing with The Weinstein Company.
Much has been made from the fact that Weinstein’s sexual misconduct is usually a tipping degree. Looks like we’re seeing evidence in fortify of that.
